SOURWOOD HONEY

Note:  The 2017 Sourwood Honey Crop was indeed fickle! Our bees visited additional nectar sources during the 2017 sourwood honey flow thereby reducing the percentage of sourwood honey in any one super and frame of honey. I went through every frame of sourwood honey in order to find good frames of sourwood to sort but to no avail.

I always reply when asked if I sell pure sourwood honey 'that there is no such thing as pure sourwood honey" for when the worker honeybee returns from any one trip arriving back to her hive her harvest is almost immediately taken by another worker bee and the harvesting worker or the field bee returns to her nectar source. After receiving the field bee's nectar the hive bee then takes the nectar and places it in a honeycomb cell where it is deposited along with the harvest from other field bees by a house bee. House bees will often work in groups filling a  particular frame with raw honey while other house bees will fan the raw honey to reduce its water content to less than 18.6 %.  ho  a cell visit a cell

Usually (most of the time) the hives in a beeyard or apiary will harvest a high percentage of sourwood nectar that is changed into sourwood honey by the honeybees. This year was different! Although we used prudent methods of varietal protection by the placement and timing of our hive stands as well as the preparation of providing and placing empty frames of honey in our honey supers at the beginning and end of the sourwood honey flow our bees in every single hive in every sourwood honey apiary decided to also visit other nectar sources as well as the sourwood blossoms all at the same time resulting in a harvest that is estimated as having about a 60% content of sourwood honey. You can still taste the sourwood and it is still buttery but the taste, color, zing, and flavor has been reduced. It has been reduced so much that I have lowered the prices of our sourwood honey to reflect this change from our norm.
